Your Story: Sequencing and narrative with personal photography

NorthSite Contemporary Arts

Participants will work with a selection of 50+ existing personal images, arranging their photographs in a folio of fresh image sequences.


Who, What, Why:

Photographers Sean Davey and Aishah Kenton of the Pacific Centre for Photographic Arts will guide you through a range of considerations and approaches to arrive at an intimate folio of personal photographs.

Each participant will create a new series of photographs presented in a cohesive folio, that communicates narrative and feeling solely through image. This activity demonstrates the power of storytelling through incidental photography of everyday life and shows that each of us has a unique position, aesthetic, and perspective to share.

“This program gives people an awareness that each of us is likely to have a body of photographic work in our phones or in an old photo album on the shelf, incidental work, work that explores where they are, their life. Through considered selection, aesthetic and subjective considerations, inclusion and reduction, everyday photographs can be combined and bought into a new realm of communication.” Sean Davey
